Secretoglobin, family 3A, member 2; Secreted cytokine-like protein. Binds to the scavenger receptor MARCO. Can also bind to pathogens including the Gram-positive bacterium L.monocytogenes, the Gram-negative bacterium P.aeruginosa, and yeast. Strongly inhibits phospholipase A2 (PLA2G1B) activity. Seems to have anti- inflammatory effects in respiratory epithelium (By similarity). Also has anti-fibrotic activity in lung. May play a role in fetal lung development and maturation. Promotes branching morphogenesis during early stages of lung development. In the pituitary, may inhibit production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) (By similarity); Secretoglobins
